2024 WALKING THE BEAT application
Youth Application

2024 Walking the Beat - Union County

Walking the Beat is a program produced by Elizabeth Youth Theater Ensemble. Walking the Beat is a multidisciplinary arts initiative that unites youth, the community, and law
enforcement to enhance public safety and community well-being. 

Guided by principles of open dialogue and compassion, participants can choose from various creative activities like Unreal Engine, VR360, oral history podcasting, music production, theater, and creative writing. All
cohorts also engage in yoga, mindfulness, meditation, and drama therapy.

The program addresses issues related to violence in the community and American culture,
particularly focusing on children and gun violence as a leading cause of death in the United
States. It emphasizes healing, reimagining policy to end violence, and promoting respect for life. Participants will learn pre-professional, creative and leadership skills. Our goal is to provide a transformative experience.

There is no cost to participate. 

Eligible youth can earn pay and/or stipend through EYTE's Earn & Learn program. Click HERE for more info

A commitment to the program and consistent attendance is expected and required.
